look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

poured about 6oz from a bottle.

A - Deep space black with brown highlights and a thin brown head, no lacing.

S - Boozy with massive dark chocolate notes. Molasses, vanilla, and dark fruit also contribute to the aroma.

T - Rather copious amount of sweet milk chocolate and vanilla with toffee and dark fruit. The alcohol is there, but it doesn't seem like the 18.5% ABV. It is just so chocolatey, but not overly sweet.

M - Medium with lighter carbonation and an alcohol burn at the end.

O - This was excellent to try and I highly recommend it. I'm not sure I would buy it, but it was awesome!
